The NFL Combine is nearly here.
This will be an opportunity for the best and brightest prospects to showcase their abilities to a potential future suitor.
Ahead of the Combine, many players have announced that they will not be attending, choosing to just focus on their Pro Day.
However, one top-five prospect has recently declared that he will be participating in this event, at least in some way.
Alabama edge Will Anderson Jr., one of the top prospects in the 2023 NFL Draft, plans to participate in at least some on-field work here at the scouting combine, per source. He’s in the LB group, which works out Thursday.

Will Anderson was one of the most talked-about players during the 2022 NCAA season.
Last year, Anderson racked up 51 total tackles, ten sacks, and one interception.
At 6-foot-4 and 234 pounds, Anderson has the build and overall profile to make a huge difference in the NFL.
Anderson was a member of the University of Alabama’s football team, an organization that has traditionally produced incredible NFL talent.
By participating in the Combine, Anderson might be able to improve his draft stock even more.
He is slated to be a top-five pick at the moment.
Although many rookies take a lot of time to grow and develop in the NFL, Anderson has been seen as a day-one-ready prospect.
Many teams have reported that he could make an incredible impact during his rookie year, given the opportunities he was given at the University of Alabama.
How high will Anderson end up climbing in the draft boards?
The combination of his Pro Day and the Combine should paint a complete picture of his intangible abilities.NEXT: Former Patriots Player Gives His Opinion Of Mac Jones
